This recipe was passed verbally to me by a client.
One cucumber will serve at least 4 people as a side.
- Peel & grate the cucumber. Place it in a sieve over a bowl and salt it reasonably generously. Leave for 10 mins or so.
- Meanwhile, mix together some yoghurt and mustard to make your dressing. You'll need to taste as you add the mustard to make it to your preference.
- After 10 minutes or so, squeeze the cucumber. A lot of liquid will already have dripped down into the bowl, but try to get as much as possible more out.
- In a bowl, combine the cucumber and dressing. If you're not serving immediately pop into the fridge to keep cold.
Here's a variation suggested by Anna:
Thinly slice the cucumber. Add a little sprinkle of sugar.
